How To Get Stained Spots Out Of My Swim Suit

Dear Jennifer, I have a bathing suit top (tank style) that is light pink with a black trim on the top. Either the black trim or the black from a pair of sandals bled onto the pink in spots and streaks when they were wet and put into a bag together after being at the beach. First I tried hand washing it using Spray’n Wash and detergent. Then I tried Carbona color run remover – letting it soak overnight – and the streaks and spots are still on the pink. The suit is 81% nylon and 19% lycra spandex. Do you have any advice for how to get the spots out – or what to use to dye it pink (if possible) or black if that is the only way to get rid of the stains. I spent a lot of money on this suit as it is hard to find bathing suits for a full-figured woman these days – and I only got to wear it once before this happened. I would appreciate any help you can give me immensely. Thank you.
Sincerely, Ms. Sam

Dear Sam,
I don’t like the sound of this. The vendor should know about it. I suggest taking it back to the store or catalog. I don’t think this was your fault (or the fault of your sandals). Manufacturers do anticipate many situations, such as wet swimsuits being stored in plastic bags, and this is not acceptable. I hope you can find another one that pleases you!
